Auxiliary Power/Tanks (orig. equip.)
The first NIAGARA 35 was shown at the 1978 Toronto International Boat Show. About half of the 260 hulls built at the St. Catharines Ont. plant went to the U.S. The original interior has 2 quarterberths in a cabin just inside the companionway. The head and galley separate it from the main saloon which extends forward of the mast with the forepeak left as storage. In 1984, a second interior (The Encore) was in introduced. This featured a large double berth forward, separated from the main saloon by a head and shower. A u-shaped galley is located to port next to the companionway, with a quarterberth and nav station to starboard. A Volvo 21-hp diesel was the standard auxiliary. Later, this was changed to a three-cylinder Volvo, or four-cylinder Westerbeke. The bowsprit was extended in 1985.
